http://www.davidwalkermemorial.org/appeal Description from the above site:  David Walker’s  Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World In 1829, David Walker wrote  David Walker’s Appeal to the Colored Citizens of the World . Many historians now regard the  Appeal  as one of the most important social and political documents of the 19th century. Nothing like it had been published before. It remained a rallying point for African Americans for many years after Walker’s death. And it...

Part 2 of Lysander Spooner's Abolitionist's Creed
Topics: Constitution, Slavery, Lysander Spooner, Law, Justice
To Grover Cleveland:   SIR, Your inaugural address is probably as honest, sensible, and consistent a one as that of any president within the last fifty years, or, perhaps, as any since the foundation of the government. If, therefore, it is false, absurd, self-contradictory, and ridiculous, it is not (as I think) because you are personally less honest, sensible, or consistent than your predecessors, but because the government itself according to your own description of it, and according to the...

“Hateful money! Hateful money!” cried F--, the economist, despairingly, as he came from the Committee of Finance, where a project of paper money had just been discussed. “What’s the matter?” I said. “What is the meaning of this sudden dislike to the most extolled of all the divinities of this world?”

My object in this treatise is to examine the real nature of the Interest on Capital, for the purpose of proving that it is lawful and explaining why it should be perpetual. This may appear a radical proposition, and yet, I confess, I am more afraid I may weary the reader by a series of mere truisms. But it is no easy matter to avoid this danger, when the facts with which we have to deal are known to every one by personal, familiar, and daily experience. But then you will say, “What is the use...

Frédéric Bastiat:  "Why do I give myself up to that dry science, political economy?   The question is a proper one. All labor is so repugnant in its nature that one has the right to ask of what use it is. Let us examine and see. I do not address myself to those philosophers who, if not in their own names, at least in the name of humanity, profess to adore poverty. I speak to those who hold wealth in esteem -- and understand by this word, not the opulence of the few, but the comfort,...

My design in this little volume is to refute some of the arguments that are urged against the   Freedom   of   Trade. I do not propose to engage in a contest with the protectionists; but rather to instill a principle into the minds of those who hesitate because they sincerely doubt. I am not one of those who say that Protection is founded on men’s interests. I am of the opinion rather that it is founded on errors, or, if you will, upon incomplete truths. Too many people fear liberty to...

The word 'law' means order, hence natural law is simply the natural order. In the sense in which natural law is relevant to jurists, it is the natural order of persons -- specifically, the order of natural persons: human beings that are capable of rational, purposive action, speech and thought. In short, natural law is the natural order of the human world. Laws are patterns of order. Hence, natural laws are patterns of natural order -- and, in the juristically relevant sense, patterns of order...

In justificatory argumentation two or more persons seek to justify or to excuse a belief or action, to determine whether it is a belief one ought to accept (or to reject) or an action one ought to undertake (or to forgo), or whether the circumstances of the case present sufficient reasons (e.g., necessity, duress, compulsion, coercion, manipulation) for excusing a person for believing or doing something that is contrary to right. Philosophers, scientists, and lawyers regularly and publicly...

Anarchocapitalism, at least in its Rothbardian version, presupposes the existence of a natural order or law of human affairs. First, there is a brief discussion of the distinction between orders of natural and orders of artificial persons. This is followed by a partial analysis of the notion of law as an order of persons. The analysis is presented as a formal axiomatic theory. Then the notion of a natural person as well as the postulates that we need for a description of natural law as an order...

Abstract . This paper presents an etymological approach to the confusing language of law and rights. It attempts to uncover the archetypical situations and relationships that appear to have been the original referents of words such as 'law' and 'rights', 'legal' and 'just', as well as other words that are indispensable in discourses about law and justice: 'freedom', 'equality', 'peace', 'authority', 'society' and others. The concepts of the lawful and the legal can be clearly distinguished. The...

From the Introduction to The Bastiat Collection by Mark Thornton: "The third section is Bastiat’s Economic Harmonies which was hastily written before his death in 1850 and is considered incomplete. Here he demonstrates that the interests of everyone in society are in harmony to the extent that property rights   are   respected. Because there are no inherent conflicts in the market, government intervention is unnecessary. The borrower wants lenders to thrive so that loans will be...

THE UNCONSTITUTIONALITY OF SLAVERY, by Lysander Spooner.  First published in 1845 with later editions -- 1860 I heard about Lysander Spooner’s “The Unconstitutionality of Slavery” via Henry Wilson’s “History of the Rise and Fall of the Slave Power in America” and created an audio version of it prior to reading it.  It is classic Spooner in the power and precision of his reasoning.  It is a Tour De Force of the application of the Trivium: his collection of relevant knowledge,...

Between Two Ages: America's Role in the Technetronic Era, by Zbigniew Brzezinski Introduction Perhaps the time is past for the comprehensive "grand" vision. In some ways, it was a necessary substitute for ignorance, a compensation in breadth for the lack of depth in man's understanding of his world. But even if this is so, the result of more knowledge may be greater ignorance or, at least, the feeling of ignorance   about where we are and where we are heading, and particularly where...

History of the Supreme Court of the United States, By Gustavus Myers. Preface. To a work such as this, avoiding as it does both theories and conclusions, and confining itself strictly to ascertainable facts, little or no prefatory note is required. Neither is any explanation necessary as to why the author chose to write the historical narrative of the Supreme Court of the United States. All departments of human activity are subject, or should be, to scrutiny and investigation, and the series of...
